Three Hospitals Fail Fire Safety Checks After London Tower Fire
July 28, 2017 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
Three hospitals in England have failed fire safety checks ordered in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire, according to an article on the BBC website.
Buildings at London's King's College Hospital, Sheffield's children's hospital and the North Middlesex Trust have been found to have combustible cladding.
Many trusts have introduced 24-hour fire warden patrols to improve safety.
A total of 38 trusts were identified last week as being of highest risk as they were already known to have been struggling with basic fire standards or had high-rise buildings that had cladding.
